Carra Inez Tuttle (52 Ancestors; #6 Carra Inez Tuttle

tuttlecara_photoAs I have stated previously, I am fortunate enough to be surrounded by photos of my ancestors. One such ancestor that I was introduced to at a relatively young age due to photos in our home was my great grandmother, Carra Inez (nee Tuttle) Wheeler.

Carra Inez Tuttle was born 27 Jul 1856 in Cavendish, Vermont to Augustus Tuttle and Elsie Robinson. While Carra was born in Cavendish, Vermont we find that Carra and her family were in Holyoke, Massachusetts by 1863 where Carra’s father owned a store.

While Carra and her family moved around in Connecticut from Holyoke to Naugatuck and then to Derby, Carra and John eventually returned to Holyoke.

Carra passed away on 25 Jan 1924 during a tragic accident when she was struck by a vehicle while she was crossing the street. Carra is buried with her husband in Foredale Cemetery in Holyoke, Massachusetts.

  2. Cavendish, Vermont was hometown for my family. My own direct ancestors were pretty well gone by the time that Carra Inez Tuttle was born because they were very much involved in founding and establishing Montpelier, Indiana in 1836-1840. They platted New England style commons
    (the only town on that plan in Indiana) and first tried to name the town Cavendish but no one in the “West” knew where they were talking about. They were very proud of being Vermonters!
